I'm hopefully planning on going to Hong Kong/Tokyo next month and am tossing up my options. While looking through the airfares, I have found that Webjet shows a WLG-HKG/HKG-HND/HND-WLG itinerary for $2500. It also had just WLG-TYO/TYO-WLG (no Hong Kong stopover) for $2200. Cathay Pacific doesn't have these airfares on their website. So my question is, what's the catch? Why does web jet have them for so low. And is it a legitimate site for booking air fares?
I know there's talk of using them to scout for the fares then scoot over to the airline site to buy the flights which I'd much prefer but since Webjet has these flights so cheap and the only reason I would need to make changes would be due to unforeseen events (i.e. the type insurance would cover), is there any reason not to go through Webjet?
